New York Aquarium has a GREAT opportunity for Aquarium Aficionados.
New York Aquarium is seeking volunteers to help share its new exhibit Ocean Wonders: Sharks as it prepares to open this summer! We are looking for volunteers to be part of the education department and fulfill roles as Ambassadors and WCS Now Interpreters.
Ambassadors act as way finders, helping guests plan their visit, and help gather groups for special talks within the exhibit spaces.
WCS Now Interpreters are trained to run Quest Stations, fun educational activities that help connect our guests to sharks and their conservation. In addition, Interpreters are trained to facilitate our new shark touch pool with the opening of the new exhibit.
All volunteers are asked to make a 1 year commitment, where they volunteer a minimum of 3 times per month, full or half days. All volunteers are interviewed and trained before being accepted into the program. Training dates are as follows: April 15, 22, 29, May 6, 13, and 20th. Ambassadors only need to attend the first two dates of training, add’l dates are optional but encouraged.
